    World Soil Day (WSD), 5 December is the United Nations Observance that celebrates healthy soils for a healthy life. This year's campaign, "Keep soil alive, Protect soil biodiversity" urges us to focus our attention on the workers belowground - from tiny bacteria to agile millipedes and slimy earthworms - all of which contribute to processes that are indispensable to life on Earth. Soil is home to more than 1/4 of our planet's biodiversity. Yet, we only know 1% of this universe. Soil organisms are responsible for many critical ecosystem processes on which humans depend: from supporting plant growth, storing carbon, and being a vast reservoir for pharmaceuticals. But soil biodiversity is under pressure! Unsustainable soil management affects life belowground. Take action to protect soil biodiversity by digging in with us!
